Meghan Markle Shown Dying in Car Crash Like Princess Diana in New Lifetime Movie

A new made-for-TV film that depicts Meghan Markle dying under a crashed car has been labeled “sick” and “tasteless” by TV viewers.

The Duchess of Sussex is portrayed in a controversial new Lifetime television movie titled Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace.

The film is a dramatization of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s decision to leave the royal family, but the opening scene depicts Meghan dying in a car crash surrounded by paparazzi in a scene reminiscent of the death of her mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

Princess Diana died after a car crash in Paris in 1997 while being chased by paparazzi.

The upcoming movie is set to premiere on Lifetime on Labor Day, September 6 at 8 p.m. and is Lifetime’s third installment of Harry and Meghan’s story.

This film recreates their royal exit, including the dramatic Oprah Winfrey interview that made worldwide headlines and sparked a debate about racism and the monarchy.

While some scenes have been recreated from real life, others are complete fiction—including the controversial car crash scene which is previewed in a trailer and causing a stir today.

“Is this a sick joke?” asks one Twitter user, while another added: “How very tasteless to reenact Diana death scene.”

The scene opens the film and is reportedly a dream sequence that is meant to mirror Princess Diana’s death.

The overturned car is surrounded by photographers and a desperate Prince Harry makes his way through the mob where he finds his wife, gravely injured and pleading for help.

The ordeal is revealed to be a nightmare and Harry wakes up and finds Meghan and their son Archie safe.

Actor Jordan Dean plays Prince Harry in the film.

The actress playing Meghan Markle in the movie, Sydney Morton, has said she wanted to approach the role “with care” as filming started just two months after the bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

“Playing Meghan, because she is a living breathing person and I’m playing her pretty much right now in her life, I definitely felt a responsibility to be respectful and very grounded and make her a three-dimensional person and not portray her as this tabloid cartoon,” Morton told Newsweek.

“I think that it’s a different thing when you’re playing someone who is alive and experiencing things in real-time you definitely want to approach it with care.”

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace is set for release on Lifetime and debuts on Labor Day, 2021.

  • Has Harry,
    Lost all his values. What would his mother think . Does he need money, is that why he approved of this offenses TV movie.
    If you need money let your wife
    get a job. Cut back on your help she didn’t have until after she married you.
    Your not in England you both said you want a normal life in United States of America
    Well start practicing what you both said.stop living like your England.

    You don’t need to care your brother or another member of your family. But think what would your mother think. You think she Happy
    Try and think about it

    And if you’re Wife had any feelings for you she would of told you it was in very bad tastes.
    You didn’t even consider your brother feeling that is heartless. And your mother is very sad . Stop thinking about your self and your wife
    And think about your family in England
    And think what are your children going think when they read about what you did for money.
    If you’re wife doesn’t support you. Then she never cared
    Marriage is give and take. When people are in love they don’t cause problems with their families.every family has issues you talk them
